SFM Major Lag

Hello, guys. I am having major problems with SFM, an obvious problem to others maybe about the lag.


I have a ATI-Mobility Radeon 4250. It works fine with the TF2 with high Graphix but SFM is VERY laggy. Yes, I have seen other posts, but those solutions do not work.


I am not sure if it is still a bug, but I am still very laggy when using SFM.

Anyone help?

Laptop graphics cards wont work with SFM. You might be able to do a work around, but rather than that wont work.

That is bad...

I'd rather not get a PC with a good graphix card...


Anything else? Could Valve be able to make SFM work with my Laptop?

Yes, you're right. They should remake the software so that it runs on YOUR computer.

You can't realistically expect the world to bend to fit your wants and needs. Either get the proper hardware to run it, or don't run it. It's that simple.

Someone else with a better reply?

that graphics card is just too weak. and it's an integrated one, huh?! there's not much you can do right now. sfm really needs one with a lil more power. but...

you're not the only one working with a tad slow one.

Well, I would've loved to have make a video which could be fun or nice.


Thanks, though.

Well, I mainly looked for the ones that talked about the major lag I get from my obviously unfit graphics card.

One of them was talking about the Viewpoint Particles, by unchecking it...still no good. Whatever the case, I don't see me doing any SFM videos at all in the future unless I am dumb enough to buy a computer, since it would just be a waste of a couple hundred dollars. I will just keep using this laptop until its end is reached.


Bye
